'Sense of humour back'The X Factor boss also claimed BBC bosses need to "get their sense of humour back", and slammed suggestions he had offered Sir Tom Jones - a coach on The Voice - a job on one of his shows.Speaking at the launch of Britain's Got Talent on Thursday, Simon said: "I think the BBC need to get their sense of humour back."It was intimated that I'd offered Tom Jones a role on one of my shows. I've genuinely met the guy once in Vegas, I think the offer he was thinking about was Opportunity Knocks. It wasn't one of my shows so he must have got the dates confused."They're winding this up to try and make it a big battle. The shows are going out at the same time and may the better one win. In terms of credibility, it's down to being successful."
